Many of the fonts from the Scangraphic Digital Type Collection are available in two versions: 'SB' created to set text, or'Body Type,' and 'SH' which works best for 'Headlines.' Scangraphic's success story began when Dr. Böger Duplomat, founded in 1934, took the decision in 1981 to combine long-standing repro experience with a move into the typesetting world. Scangraphic was the new company that was founded to build digital composition systems that would blend expertise from both fields.
Mannesmann AG, one of the largest organizations in Germany, acquired Scangraphic in 1989 from the Dr. Böger Group, which was owned primarily by Knut Smeidel and Bernd Holthusen. Those two had introduced phototypesetters to Dr. Böger in 1981, with the Scantext 1000 system. They then made Scangraphic one of the early companies to adopt internal-drum imagesetter technology with the Scantext 2000 in 1986.
Scholtz Fonts, started by Anton Scholtz in 1997, specializes in ¿African flavor¿ fonts. The foundry is based in Durban, South Africa, where the Zulu culture of the region has greatly influenced the font design. Scholtz began to create his own fonts to enhance the work produced by his design company, and this branch of his design work has grown steadily in recent years. In his profession as a graphic designer, he became aware of how few available fonts were suitable for African inspired design. It was to meet this lack that he initially started work in typography. His wife, Merle Scholtz, has long worked in the field of African patterns and they have collaborated in producing the most extensive font-based collections of African patterns. He has since branched into the genres of art deco and grunge fonts.

Studiocharlie works in product design, graphics, type design and video. We design typographic fonts. They are sometimes developed from signs and letters linked to our graphic and comunication projects (for ex. FontFoliae, Stereotype, Gattofont), whilst others are the object of specific research. In general we develop fonts for traditional typographic use like word processing (for ex. Superbastone or Csuni, which received a special commendation for the 20th edition of the Compasso d'Oro ADI Prize), or more ¿playful¿ fonts, for titles, logos and contemporary graphics (for ex. Cavillus, Carpenteria), and dingbat fonts (Gattofont, Catacumbes, Charlie Dog, FontFoliae). Three people founded Studiocharlie in 2002, and work on the development of all the team¿s projects: Gabriele Rigamonti, Carla Scorda, Vittorio Turla.

Suomi Type Foundry is a company dedicated to creating high quality typefaces. The company was founded by Tomi Haaparanta, who has been designing typefaces since 1990. The philosophy of Suomi Type Foundry is to make extensive type families, so the user has more to choose from; too often you find a great typeface, but the weight is not just right. Our fonts often come with an average of seven weights, so it is likely that you will find the right weight. Also we do not want to exclude any users, so we try to keep the range of our type library as versatile as possible, from comfortable types for text setting, to signage type families, to more evocative fonts for brand design. And sometimes stuff just for fun.
